Join with Others to Stand Against Heroin
Wentzville’s Mayor and members of its Board of Aldermen have been directly affected by the impacts of heroin overdoses. In an effort to increase awareness about the dangers of heroin use in our community, Wentzville’s Police Department will again host this important walk in April.
This year, the event will kick off with a pancake breakfast beginning at 8:30 a.m. at Holt High School (600 Campus Dr.). Doors open at 8 a.m.
The event will be emceed by Gee Vigna. Following the breakfast speakers will kick off the walk, which will leave from Holt High School at 10 a.m. and end at the Wentzville Law Enforcement Center (1019 Schroeder Creek Blvd.). Everyone who attends is invited to bring signs, posters and pictures to carry during the walk.
The goal of this walk is to connect our community with the available resources in hopes people will not try heroin, not even once. The resources will provide valuable information on the signs and symptoms of use, counseling availability and emergency intervention for children during times of crisis.
